A fresh approach in a headline-driven industry, our reporting is an educational form of journalism that goes beyond answering “who, what, when, where and why” of certain topics by connecting them to the ideas of social justice, human rights and our civil liberties.

Our independence allows us a unique opportunity to investigate important issues without the restraints which often impede larger corporate media outlets.  Be a part of something groundbreaking and meaningful, join MPN in our journey to bring back the true meaning of news as we break political stories, ask the real tough questions, and report on issues that are in the public’s interest.

This position is fast paced, requires a dedicated and energized self start to work with swaths of data while understanding the complex political climate of the topics we cover.
